  1. Can we get an “unread” folder?

    You could make the app better by allowing an Unread folder or tab so that you can easily get to the messages you have not yet read please

  2. Groups shared calendars

    I need to be able to see the shared calendars of each of the Groups that I am a member/owner of. The Groups app is no longer available for many in our organization.

  4. Mark Unread From Here

    Similar to Gmail's "mark unread from here" so that the "unread email" count is accurate.

  5. Initials in coloured circles

    Give users the ability to remove the coloured circles with initials in them. They follow no order and make my screen look messy.

  6. Ability to hide message previews

    Forcing us to view message previews in a folder takes away from valuable smart phone screen real estate. Please give us the option to enable or disable message previews in all folders, especially the inbox.

  7. Delay Delivery:Schedule Emails

    Please bring this option to mobile.

    I don’t like to message people out of office hours. Scheduling an email ahead of time is helpful and allows to respond/write something when the moment strikes.

  8. Sync Signatures

    Signatures should sync across all outlook applications: desktop, web and mobile. It’s annoying to have to recreate these.

  9. Remove splash screen

    In the latest build of a look, I am seeing a splash screen every time I open the app. It’s obnoxious, and it slows down getting to my email. Please remove it.

  10. Unread email

    I have email rules which mean that unread emails go directly into a folder. There should be an ‘unread email’ feature from all folders not just the inbox

  11. Smart suggestion for moving email to folders

    The only reason Outlook is now not my first choice of app is like many people I sort my emails into folders. Another app I use, Spark actually learns what folder you move messages into then suggesting the folder saving time scrolling down through tons of folders. Add that feature and Outlook will rule the world!

  12. Apply same rules as desktop app

    I set rules in outlook on my PC (for example email notifications to move to a particular folder). When I check my emails from the mobile app, the rules I have created don’t apply until I log in from my PC. I would like all rules I created from desktop app to apply on the mobile app automatically.

  14. Match fonts

    Please help mask that emails are being sent via a smart device/Outlook app instead of via PC by allowing (or automatically) matching reply font/size/color to original email font/size/color. Give font options and control to the user.

  15. Add “always BCC”

    It would be great to have a feature that would allow you to always add yourself as a BCC on emails sent.

  16. Sync all emails

    It would be great to have ability to sync all emails in the inbox especially for exchange and 365 accounts

    And to have the ability to choose the period to sync emails instead of load more messages button

  18. Do not disturb

    Be able to set times to not receive email notifications. I have a boss who works in the middle of the night and sends emails. My phone is set to do not disturb so I do not hear alerts but I see the banner preview of the message and it makes me look at them and then I cannot sleep.
